“bizarre rock formations in crystal clear water”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

the ponta da piedade is a must for every visitor of the algarve and on of the highest frequentated hotspots in this area. the best time to go there is in the early morning or in the late afternoon for the sunset. an easy walkable path between the big rocks brought us down to a small pier. the panorama view is extraordinary and prersents the algarve in it best way. a very rugged steep coast with bizarre rock formations makes this place so typical. organised boat trips are available in lagos a few kilometers far from ponte piedade, the price depends on the season and the number of people in one boat. we did this trip alone per feet and it was also very interessting to go there.

“Beautiful place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 17, 2013

Just a 5 minutes drive from Lagos takes you to this wonderful nature scenario. You can enjoy some clean water and nice view of the grottos. You can take a boat ride around this place.

“Simply breathtaking.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

Unquestionably the best way to understand the beauty of Ponta de Piedade near Lagos is from the sea. On hand you’ll find an abundance of small boats available to take you on a tour of the grottoes and many rock formations. Be sure to have your camera ready to capture the beauty that is the sun shining into the grottoes and reflecting off the crystal clear water… it is, without a doubt, simply breathtaking.
